  • A Man’s Perspective on Leggings

    Church for Men ^ | May 28, 2019 | David Murrow
    A few weeks ago an Indiana mother wrote a letter to the Notre Dame University school newspaper, asking women not to wear leggings to Catholic mass. After sitting behind a group of girls in church with her four sons she wrote: I was ashamed for the young women at Mass. I thought of all the other men around and behind us who couldn’t help but see their behinds. My sons know better than to ogle a woman’s body — certainly when I’m around (and hopefully, also when I’m not). They didn’t stare, and they didn’t comment afterwards. But you couldn’t...
  • New Shocking Reasons Hormonal Contraceptives Tank Women’s Sex Drive

    Natural Womanhood ^ | May 4, 2019 | Grace Stark
    One of the greatest paradoxes about birth control is that, while it may make sex seem more available to women, many women taking the drugs feel less in the mood. The connections between hormonal contraceptives and symptoms of low libido are long established. But research reveals further reasons women may be experiencing less sexual pleasure while on the Pill, ring, patch, implant, or IUD. Not only have hormonal contraceptives been shown to significantly decrease women’s testosterone levels, and lead to severe depression and suicide attempts . . .

    Runner's World ^ | May 1, 2019 | Hailey Middlebrook
    On Wednesday morning, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) ruled in favor of the restrictions placed on female track athletes with high levels of testosterone by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF). The landmark decision means that women like Caster Semenya of South Africa, a two-time Olympic gold medalist in the 800 meters, must take testosterone suppressants in order to continue competing in certain middle-distance events. Since 2009, when Semenya won the World Championship 800 meters in Berlin at the age of 18, the middle-distance runner has been heavily scrutinized by the IAAF. At 5-foot-10 and with a...

    A Fort Lauderdale man was in for a surprise when he went to use the bathroom Thursday. Man finds iguana in toilet, calls 911. Firefighters respond to the home, remove the lizard. Iguana was taken outside and released into the wild. The man found an iguana inside his toilet bowl and called 911. Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue responded to the man's home and removed the lizard from the toilet. Firefighters then took the iguana outside and released it. The fire department shared pictures of the iguana on social media. "Can you imagine lifting the toilet seat and finding this? Fort...

    A top-ranked runner in NCAA women’s track is dominating the competition and setting records one year after competing as a man at the same level. Franklin Pierce University senior CeCe Telfer leads the NCAA’s Division II women’s division in the 55-meter dash and 55-meter hurdle events. Telfer led Franklin Pierce’s women’s track team into the top 25 rankings for the first time in program’s history, local newspaper The Keene Sentinel reported in December. The New Hampshire college is ranked 14th in DII. “Senior CeCe Telfer (Lebanon, N.H.) won three Northeast-10 Conference titles on Sunday, to lead the Franklin Pierce University...

    A team of researchers from Denmark and France has found that taking regular doses of the pain reliever ibuprofen over a long period of time can lead to a disorder in men called compensated hypogonadism. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the group describes their study, which involved giving the drug to volunteers and monitoring their hormones and sperm production. To learn more about the possible impacts of the popular anti-inflammation drug Ibuprofen on male fertility when taken for long periods of time, the researchers asked 31 men between the ages of 18 and...
  • ‘Believing you’re a winner’ gives men a testosterone boost and promiscuous disposition

    08/16/2018 5:35:03 PM PDT · by LibWhacker · 22 replies
    ‘Believing you’re a winner’ gives men a testosterone boost and promiscuous dispositionNew findings suggest that the male body tries to “optimise” self-perceived improvements in social status through hormonal shifts that promote “short-term mating”. A new study shows that men only have to believe they’ve bested another man in competition to get raised testosterone levels and an inflated sense of their own value as a sexual prospect. Scientists found that this hormonal and psychological shift made men more inclined to approach new potential partners. The research team measured hormone levels, as well as self-perceived attractiveness and confidence in approaching women, in...

    Caster Semenya, the world and Olympic 800 meters champion, is fighting "unfair" regulations that hinder certain female athletes. The International Association of Athletics Federations brought in controversial new rules in April that mean some women with high natural testosterone levels could be excluded from middle-distance races. Semenya, a two-time Olympic and three-time world champion, is the highest-profile athlete expected to be impacted by the rules that divide medical opinion. The South African's lawyers, Norton Rose Fulbright, which has offices in London, issued a statement on Monday saying the athlete would "file the legal challenge to ensure, safeguard and protect the...
  • New Research Finds 75% of Trans Women Can't Suppress Testosterone, Even With Hormone Therapy

    A full three out of four transwomen who undergo hormone therapy to “transition” into being female never reach normal female hormone levels, according to a new scientific study. I know. It's almost like it was designed to be that way or something. Here’s how it works, in a nutshell. Average adult males have testosterone levels ranging anywhere between 270-1,070 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL). Women’s testosterone levels, on the other hand, average about 15-70 ng/dL – obviously, a much lower level. When a biological male decides he feels like a woman and chooses to medically force his physical body into accepting this delusion, he...

    It's a gel, but it doesn't go where you'd think. If you're a sperm-producer who doesn't want kids, your personal contribution to contraception is currently limited to condoms or the snip. Needless to say, not everybody likes those choices. But now a topical treatment could add another simple, non-invasive option to the mix - it's a hormonal gel that reduces sperm count when applied to the skin. Next April, researchers at the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development are expecting to begin clinical trials on this gel, which has been in development for several years. In 2012 the...

    To be fair—given the perverse transgender agenda of the modern left—my idea was that men (like Bruce—“Dude Looks Like a Lady!”—Jenner) would compete as “women.” My idea was not that female athletes who want to pretend that they are men (or boys)—and thus take athletic performance-enhancing drugs such as testosterone to help live such a deluded fantasy—would compete as females. I did not imagine this because (I thought) virtually every female athletic association would not allow such an advantage. Of course, in most athletic associations this is the case, but at the high school level in the state of Texas,...

    Trinity’s transgender wrestler credits teammates for his state title CYPRESS Mack Beggs came here to wrestle. And wrestle he did, manhandling four opponents over two days as he captured a Class 6A girls state championship Saturday. The 110-pound gold medalist also captured something else: The attention of a nation increasingly polarized by transgender issues. Beggs, a 17-year-old transgender boy from Euless Trinity High School, didn’t come to the state tournament seeking to carry the transgender torch, or to become a lightning rod, or to be the target of a lawsuit that could end his high school wrestling career. But those...

    The manly hormone evolved 500 million years ago — from estrogen. 1. Testosterone is produced in men’s testicles, women’s ovaries and the adrenal glands of both sexes. In the early weeks of pregnancy, it kicks off the development of reproductive organs for males. 2. After birth, testosterone plays a role in regulating processes from fat distribution to red blood cell production. 3. Long before the hormone was discovered, people ascribed youth-restoring powers to the testicles. Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder noted the sexually stimulating effects of dining on hyena genitals (with honey, of course). 4. Honeyed hyena testes sound preferable...

    A man with advanced prostate cancer is believed to be cured after doctors 'shocked' his tumour to death with huge amounts of testosterone. The result has been described as 'unexpected' and 'exciting' because most prostate cancer therapies work by depriving tumours of testosterone, because cancer uses it as a fuel.

    A Fort Myers doctor says if you are a man thinking about voting for Hillary Clinton, you may need to have your testosterone checked. It's a controversial commercial hitting Southwest Florida airwaves. The doctor says it's a humorous way to promote his business and also join the political discussion, but some radio listeners aren't laughing. “Most are not aware of the effect low T can have on your mental state. For instance your ability to focus and think clearly," he said. Dr. Dareld Morris of Morris Medical and Weight Loss Center in Fort Myers is issuing a warning to all...

The last paragraph of the article reveals that male to female athletes will be tested, but female to male persons will not. …

    Latest dispatch from the Department of Too Much Information: Thomas Roberts wants you to know that if diagnosed with low-T, he would take a testosterone supplement "without hesitation." More surprising is Roberts' reckless attitude. Asked whether testosterone's possible health risks would dissuade him from taking the hormone, Roberts replied: "No. I want to live today, I will borrow from tomorrow." Roberts' startling admission came during today's Morning Joe segment on Time's current cover story, "Manopause," which looks into the testosterone-supplement boom and its associated dangers.
